Suspended Installation using Dried and Faux Flowers
Time: 16 minutes | Season: All Year Round
Approx. wholesale cost: £40/50 + labour and delivery charge (depending on varieties used and size of overall composition)
In this demonstration, our tutor will show you the mechanics, techniques and plant materials involved in constructing a dried hanging installation to hang above a table. This design is ideal any type of event including a dinner party, an afternoon tea, hen party or birthday lunch. Alternatively, the construction can be made for workspace such as a hair or beauty salon or in a shop window.
Due to the use of faux and dried flowers, the construction can be left in situ (as long as it is in a dry environment, out of direct sunlight) or de-constructed and re-purposed for another design.

|Plant Materials / Equipment
|Planks of wood (decorative, slats or even a ladder)
